New Friends

The people of the gun community continue to amaze me.

I met an acquaintance today at the range. OldNFO offered to play host at the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club. We had met over lunch last week, and made arrangements to connect at the range to do some shooting and tell some lies. We connected this morning and worked out a plan for the day and then proceeded to have a grand time.

We spent several hours punching holes in paper and giving our firearms a workout. We've determined that Beauty might have an issue with the iron sights, beyond my inability to hold a steady aim. So, I will get the manual out and see if there is something obviously amiss. We were able to get her sighted in fairly tightly with the scope, so it is not an issue with the mechanics, barrel, or upper. I'll get it figured out soon.

Lunch was great. The shooting facilities were impressive. I gained a friend.

Today was a good day.

OldNFO, Thank you again for a great time today. I hope we can do this again soon. Maybe even shoot a little trap next time. ;)
